CollectionDX Nor'easter Vegetius is HERE.
Words cannot express how excited I am that this is here. It looks so much better than I could have imagined.
The CollectionDX Nor'easter Vegetius has taken a while to get off the ground, but it is finally here.
This thing is limited to only 50 peices, and they won't last long. Head on over to the CDX Shop and grab one before they are gone!

DRACUT, MASSACHUSETTS, November 5, 2008 — Following the sold-out "Gore Version Sky Deviler" CollectionDX is proud to announce our latest exclusive toy - the Nor'easter ver. Vegetius!
Vegetius stands 12 inches tall and is made out of translucent blue glitter soft vinyl. Made in Japan by the master craftsmen at Marmit, Vegetius has 5 points of articulation and is limited to 50 pieces.
Vegetius is one of the many giant monsters that take part in the Boston-based Kaiju Big Battel, a series of live action-monster wrestling events. He is the most beast-like creature of the Battel and no man or monster can control him around food.
This color scheme is meant to evoke the harsh, cold winter of the New England region, home to both CollectionDX and Kaiju Big Battel. The blue vinyl is translucent with metallic flakes; a color mixed exclusively for CollectionDX. This color has never been done by Marmit before.
Nor'easter ver. Vegetius is available NOW in the CollectionDX shop for $65
The figure comes bagged with a header card featuring art by CollectionDX’s own JoshB.

I agree with Dave. The blue figure on that pitch black background looks awesome!
Also, great header art! I'm really glad this one is getting a dedicated header. Nice stuff Josh!
Looking awesome, I'm very excited. Love the header card art, too.
Mine came in today. Just in time, as the temperatures are dropping low this week here in the deep South. The forecasters must have seen him coming!!! hehe
So awesome, I love it! Must snap pics soon!!!
Got it today, and I love it. It is just gorgeous and so fun to handle. Thanks so much. And like REX mentioned, it came with great timing, because it's supposed to start snowing around here very soon.
I have a minuscule vinyl collection, only two pieces and two on the way...but it's off to an awesome start!
